Anti-microbial additive for use in coatings.


Disclosed herein are polymeric materials such as a coating, a plastic, a laminate, a composite, an elastomer, an adhesive, or a sealant; a surface treatment such as a textile finish or a wax; a filler for such a polymeric material or a surface treatment that includes an enzyme such as an esterase (e.g., a lipolytic enzyme, a sulfuric ester hydrolase, an organophosphorus compound degradation enzyme), an enzyme (e.g., a lysozyme, a lytic transglycosylase) that degrades a cell wall and/or a cell membrane component, a biocidal or biostatic peotide, and/or a peptidase. Also disclosed herein are methods of altering a materials property such as service life, flexability, or rigidity, by incorporation of an enzyme into a material capable of being chemically crosslinked by the activity of a lipolytic enzyme, a hydrolase, and/or a urease.


Disclosed herein are materials such as a coating, comprising a lipolytic enzyme or organophosphrous compound degrading enzyme. Also disclosed herein are methods of visually detecting enzyme activity in a coating by contacting the coating with a substrate of an enzyme and a visual indicator that changes appearance upon production of a product of enzyme activity on a tack-free coating surface.
